Get the Look: Kate Hudson's Golden Glow

Kate Hudson may be the star of box office hit Fool’s Gold, but there was nothing phony about her all-natural makeup look for the BAFTA Awards. We were so impressed with her subtle golden glow that we asked her makeup artist, Leslie Lopez to let us in on the secrets — and they’re a lot simpler than you’d think. Lopez says she took inspiration from Kate’s Dior sequined gown when planning the look. “The dress was so strong on its own,” she explains, “that I wanted to keep the makeup light-handed and natural so there was a balance.” The key? Keep the products to a minimum. Lopez used just five essential items. She started by creating a base with Dior’s lightweight Airflash Foundation in #300, $60, which gives skin an airbrushed effect. A dusting of LORAC Cheek Duo Blush/Bronzer, $29, added a sun-kissed glow. Lopez then blended NARS Goldfinger eye shadow over the star’s upper lid and applied a couple sweeps of DiorShow Mascara in Black, $24. The final touch, dewy neutral lips, were created with Dior Addict High Shine Lipstick in Casual Beige, $25. We think the final effect goes to show that sometimes less really is more.
